Friday Night Lights Moved, Faithful and New Fans Are Upset

October 13, 2010

ABC Family has moved “Friday Night Lights from its promoted time slot of 6:00pm EST, to 11:00 am EST. The move has drawn a large outcry from the many fans of the show. In its place the cable network has decided that My Wife and Kids should be in that time slot.

So far there has been no reason given by the Network as to why they would take a fresh show to syndication and replace it with a show that has been out in syndication for awhile and just about every cable network runs.

Friday Night Lights is a show about a small Texas town and stories that revolve around its high school football team. It also points out the devotion that small towns around the country put behind their high school sports. Below is a short clip.

There has been rumblings of a boycott against ABC Family Channel and Disney the parent company. Straight out boycotts against networks never last long enough to hurt them. However, contacting the advertisers and threatening to stop using their products has an effect.

I would hate to boycott ABC Family and Disney because they do have some family oriented show also. If you would like to join in and send a message of displeasure at the move go to, ABC Family/FNL and let them know how you feel.

Ps. Please be civil about it. I feel that it has more of a chance if its done respectfully. Also The 101 on Direct TV has the Last Season, starting on Wednesday, October 27, 2010.

    Mary, that is why the next step is boycott all of Diseny and all their sponsors. It gets their attention, in most cases.

    It is really unfortunate that they advertised for a month that Friday Night Lights was going to be shown from the beginning, then after the first season they just completely moved it to another time slot without advertising it at all. Although the advance notice would have been nice, at least I would have had a little warning that my new favorite show was going to be on every day while I am at work, it still really pisses me off. I looked forward to it every day, it’s like watching an hours worth of a good movie every night. I would really like to know why they did this, and of all shows to put in it’s place they picked “my wife and kids” which has been on the air forever and every one has seen every episode. I can’t even bring myself to watch the channel at all anymore. ABC Family’s web site has a comment page and every one is blogging about what a mistake some one has made but I don’t think that anyone working for ABC Family even reads the stupid thing because they surely aren’t doing anything about it.
